Dahl, JoAnn (Marriage - 10 October 1964)


Nuptial vows were exchanged Saturday in Zion Lutheran Church in Granton, uniting in marriage JoAnn Dahl and Milton J. Haskins, both of Rt. 1 Granton. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Dahl, Sr., of Rt. 1, Granton, and Mrs. Ethel Haskins Schriener of Marshfield.  The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. F. C. Benecke before an altar graced with bouquets of white gladioli and blue and white carnations.


Two hundred fifty guests witnessed as the bride entered the church with her uncle, Robert Lindekugel of Oshkosh, who gave her in marriage.


For her wedding the bride chose a gown of angelskin peau de soie, styled with a Basque bodice featuring a scallop neckline, trimmed with oat pearls and Rembrandt Alencon lace.  Long, tapered sleeves came to a point at her wrist. The gown, having princess lines, was detailed with a full, flowing bouffant skirt trimmed with appliquéd lace and etched with pearls and sequins. A peau de soie chapel train completed the ensemble. A bouffant cloud veil of bridal illusion was attached to a crown of lace and pearls. She carried a bouquet of red roses and white carnations with streamers. Red rosebuds and lily-of-the-valley were attached to the streamers.


Miss Joyce Dahl of Granton was her sister’s maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Herbert White of Dixon, Ill., and Mrs. Lloyd Hilt of Marshfield. They were attired in street-length dresses of Cotillion blue lace of peau de soie material. Their dresses featured bateau necklines, cap sleeves and fitted bodices. The modified bell-shaped skirts with the effect of a mock overskirt were trimmed with a large peau de soie rose.  Their Cotillion blue pillbox hats held face veils of matching color. Their bouquets were white gardenias trimmed with blue, with a blue net background. Blue and white streamers cascaded from the bouquets.


Douglas Haskins of Marshfield was bestman. Groomsmen were Lloyd Hilt and Herbert White.  Ushers were Victor Lindekugel of Oshkosh and Clinton Radke of St. Paul, Minn.  Arthur Dahl, Jr., brother of the bride, carried the rings on a white satin pillow, Janice Sorenson of Owen, cousin of the groom, and flower girl, was attired in a dress identical to that of the bride.


William Chambers of Loyal sang, "The Wedding Prayer" and "The Lord’s Prayer," accompanied by Mrs. Leland Garbisch.


A reception for 200 guests was held in the church basement.


The bride is a 1959 graduate of the Granton High School and has been doing factory work in Marshfield.  Mr. Haskins, a 1963 graduate of a technical school, is employed by a cooperative in Wautoma, where they will reside on their return from a wedding trip to southern Wisconsin.


Guests were from Oshkosh, Milwaukee, Neillsville, Loyal, Stetsonville, Colby, Marshfield Granton, Owen, Unity, Wautoma, Kaukauna, Merrill, Chippewa Falls, Chili, Medford; and Dixon, Ill.
